I believe that like me, the people behind these robberies are extreme athletes using their skills to disrupt the international markets and they don’t care who gets killed in the process.” – Keanu Reeves… I mean Special Agent Utah (Point Break remake)
It appears that they changed the original 1991 Point Break movie a lot. Mainly, the “ex-presidents” aren’t just thieves showing people that “the human spirit is still alive” but modern day Robin Hoods, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor. Cool.
Another big change is that these “ex-presidents” are not just surfers this time. This time they are “extreme athletes” excelling in BASE Jumping, Wingsuit Flying, Big Wave Surfing, Snowboarding, Rock Climbing, and more.
Point Break is one of the best cult surf movies of all time. Will the new Point Break measure up? Maybe. But, the guys in the new Point Break aren’t as good looking as the original guys and none of them are Patrick Swayze nor Keanu Reeves nor Gary Busey nor Flea nor Anthony Kiedis, so, we’ll see…
